The Best Hotels in the World, #12 COMO The Treasury, Perth, Australia
The Best Hotels in the World
October 17, 2017
More than 300,000 of our trusted Travelers voted in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards, sharing tales—and tips—from their vacations in Santorini, or weekends spent at Italian palazzos in Ho Chi Minh City. Get ready: These are the 50 best hotels in the world, say our readers, where service, style, good eats, and sublime views make for a memorable stay.
A fitting emblem of the new Perth, The Treasury is part of the ambitious Cathedral Square development, a $580 million reinvention of a cluster of 19th-century state treasury and Anglican Diocese buildings on the edge of the Central Business District, which sat empty for more than 20 years before the COMO outpost moved in. Almost every detail in the hotel (which primarily occupies the top floors of three 140-year-old buildings) has been returned to its original state, from the reinstalled dormer windows to the roofline’s copper trim. Of course, this being Australia, all things begin and end with food. Check out Wildflower, the hotel’s glassed-in rooftop restaurant, for a taste of this pioneer city’s thriving food scene, courtesy of executive chef Jed Gerrard, and David Thompson’s Thai street-food joint, Long Chim, just downstairs from the hotel.
